Make way for 'The Real Housewives of Miami'

Breaking news from People page editor Madeleine Marr:

The rumors were true and now it's official: Bravo's The Real Housewives of Miami, is hitting the airwaves Feb. 22, the network announced Thursday. And no, contrary to what you've heard, drag-queen extraordinaire Elaine Lancaster didn't make the cut. She will make some drama-filled cameos, though.

Check out the new cast:

Lea Black: Philanthropy and charity functions are her bag, so expect lots of dressing up. She and her husband, famed criminal defense attorney Roy Black, have a 9-year-old son.

Alexia Echevarria: The executive editor of Venue magazine lives on Miami Beach with her husband Herman. ``The Cuban Barbie'' has two sons from a previous marriage.

Marysol Patton: The PR diva owns the Patton Group, throwing hot parties, mostly revolving around fashion. Word is she gets romantically entangled while cameras roll.

Cristy Rice: Another ``basketball wife,'' the mom of five/Miami native recently divorced NBA star Glen Rice (they had some nasty scuffles). The show will follow her home and work life at her children's clothing store, Bri Bri Boutique in South Miami.

Adriana Sidi: The gallery owner of Adriana de Moura in Coral Gables also hits the social circuit pretty hard. The Brazilian bombshell is ``coming off a traumatic divorce,'' says the release, but the mother of one son is engaged to someone new.

Larsa Pippen: The former model is married to retired NBA star Scottie Pippen and they live in Fort Lauderdale. Bravo has this to say about the Lebanese beauty: ``When she's not busy turning her three little boys into star athletes, shopping for her one-year-old princess, or firing nannies, Larsa is happy to spend a little time on herself.''

Let the fur fly, ladies!

Terrible, just terrible. Are people so vapid that they actually watch this garbage?

With any luck, it lasts as long as Miami Social. Crap like this gives our city a bad name...

Hey Steve--thing is, Elaine Lancaster was never anointed (cursed?) as a "real housewife" Contrary to erroneous press reports , Elaine was never a housewife but garnered lots of ink because, well, she's Elaine! She will appear on some episodes, though, because she is BFF with Lea Black. So that's where that whole rumor came from. Whatever you call her, however, I hope her air time does her justice!

Elaine is the Only Star on this show & the Only Real Reason to Watch. Bravo better step up or Some other network will steal her Away.
